Elizabethton Police have arrested a woman who they say falsely claimed an officer assaulted her during a traffic stop and stalked her.
Tiffany D. Scalf, 23, 308 Johnson Ave., Elizabethton, was taken into custody Friday on a charge of filing a false report.
Capt. Joy Markland said the EPD was notified of allegations being made against an officer within the department on Thursday, Oct. 11.
Scalf had approached Carter County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Dave Ryan, Markland said in an affidavit, and told him she had been assaulted by Officer Matt Taylor of the EPD. The deputy then passed the information along to the on-duty patrol supervisor, Sgt. Shane Darling, who began looking into the report.
